Our Fauna Sauna radiates Far Infrared Radiant Heat, which is the oldest and most natural type of heat. The sun gives off many different kinds of energy besides light. The warmth we feel from being in the sun is actually Infrared or radiant heat, and is healthful, unlike the harmful ultraviolet rays that are one of the sun’s other energy forms. Far Infrared heat is required by all living things on earth, and is completely safe for your pet.
The sauna works by warming objects, and not the surrounding air. A dog lying under the sauna receives deep penetrating, healing warmth without becoming overheated. This naturally healing Infrared energy penetrates up to 2 inches into your dog’s skin, tissue, and joints, stimulating circulation and increasing metabolic activity. Swelling and inflammation are reduced, and pain is relieved. Healing is speed up, as cells are stimulated to regenerate more quickly. Your dog is soothed as her muscles relax and her body is warmed.
Meet with our massage practitioner to discuss the various options for your dog’s massage session. Sessions range in length of time from 10 minutes to 30 minutes, depending on the dog’s size and needs. Cost of massage sessions start as low as $15.
